ECE Associate Professor Sudeep Pasricha has been selected to receive the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC) Award for Excellence as a mid-career researcher.
Pasricha received the honor for his outstanding, influential, and long-lasting contributions to scalable computing, a field that encompasses areas such as high performance computing systems, cloud computing systems, algorithms, applications, and scheduling and workflows.
"With exceptional nominees from three continents competing for the international award, this recognition underscores Pasricha's impact in the scalable computing space," said Tony Maciejewski, ECE department head.
Pasricha's research in scalable computing spans tiny embedded systems all the way up to massive supercomputers, focusing on innovative architectures and algorithms for energy-efficiency and fault resilience in computing systems. His advancements have played an important societal role in smart energy management, ranging from extending the life of battery charges in smartphones to reducing the energy footprint of data centers.
IEEE TCSC is an International Forum within the IEEE aimed at fostering research and education in scalable computing. The award recognizes scholars who are within five to ten years of receiving their Ph.D. degree.
Since joining Colorado State in 2008, Pasricha has garnered an international reputation for his pioneering work in energy-efficient and fault-tolerant embedded, mobile, and high-performance computing systems.
With more than $2.5 million in research support from outside agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Pasricha was one of 40 scientists and engineers to receive the AFOSR Young Investigator Award. Pasricha has received numerous best paper awards, and he has authored or co-authored more than 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, with more than 1,700 citations.
In addition to his scholarly and research accomplishments, Professor Pasricha is passionate about teaching and hands-on learning. He has developed innovative new undergraduate and graduate coursework, and he led the effort to create a cross-departmental online certification in embedded systems. Since 2009, he has mentored 21 senior design teams, seven of which have received awards at Engineering Days.
Pasricha earned his Ph.D. in 2008 from the University of California, Irvine.
